You are warmly invited to attend the 2019 New Zealand Law Society CLE Tax Conference to be held on Thursday 12 September 2019 at the Cordis, Auckland.
The full-day programme provides for an interesting and topical analysis of the current tax landscape, hot spots for change, and practical and technical issues affecting legal, accounting and in-house tax advisers.
In light of the coalition government's decision not to implement any capital gains tax, a burning question for tax advisers is how does that impact upon the current tax landscape? Particularly so in terms of taxpayer compliance and Inland Revenue audit activity, and changes to the tax system which can now receive a clear focus, such as those necessitated by the digital economy we live in and other implementation of emerging technologies, such as crypto-currency.
We have a varied programme for the conference with content which will navigate through the CGT-free world we now live in (at least, for a while anyway). The programme provides practical insights for tax advisors, from current trends in M&A activity to how Inland Revenue's transformation will affect day to day interactions. Other sessions will deal with recent and topical case law and legislative developments, with perspectives from Inland Revenue and private practice experts.
From a tax policy perspective, we will be provided with an update on the government's tax policy programme, in particular the latest developments in the taxation of the digital economy and the government's response to practical issues in terms of taxing the digital economy.
A highlight of the programme is an address from our keynote speaker, Sir Robert McLeod, on the burial of capital gains tax and where we now go without the lynch pin of a wholesale capital gains tax. Sir Robert has considerable experience in this matter, having been a member of a number of committees which have considered introduction of a CGT (including the Valabh and McLeod tax committees). He is one of the best placed to provide informed commentary on the outcomes of the rejection of a capital gains tax by the New Zealand government.
We look forward to you joining us for a topical and relevant day.We hope to see you there.
